Slovenia relaxes border controls as it ends coronavirus epidemic

TD Editor

Slovenia became the first country in Europe to officially call an end to its COVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic. The country has seen fewer than seven new confirmed cases each day for the past two weeks. Overall, according to Johns Hopkins University & Medicine, the country has had 1,465 confirmed cases and 103 deaths.

Travellers arriving in Slovenia from other European Union (EU) member states will no longer have to quarantine themselves for at least seven days. Foreign citizens who display symptoms of coronavirus will not be allowed to enter the country. A quarantine of at least 14 days will remain in place for those travelling from non-EU countries.

All bars and restaurants as well as small hotels with up to 30 rooms will be allowed to open next week. It’s expected that face masks will remain required in public, as will social distancing measures (at least five feet).
